Continuing my recent trend of posting tips regarding virtualization, if you are utilizing virtual machines (VMs) heavily, a tool you might want to consider is Microsoft Virtual Server 2005. This tool offers much more with regards to resource allocation than Virtual PC (such as the ability to bind processors to VMs) and is completely free.
If you only have a one or two VMs you use and use them sparingly, this is probably not for you. On the other hand if you are like me and do a lot of work using VMs then this is a great tool.
Virtual Server is supported on XP and higher and any existing VMs you have created using Virtual PC will work.
